The Iowa Republican: Republicans rally around Burgmeier in HD 90

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

The special election in House District 90 between Republican candidate
Stephen Burgmeier and Democrat Curt Hanson is now less than a week
away. If Republicans are able to pick up the seat, they will gain a
critical vote in the Iowa House that should help fend off a number of
labor union bills that would devastate Iowa's economy. A win by
Republicans in HD 90 would also create a tremendous amount of
political momentum for House Republicans if they are able to capture
the seat. On the Democratic side, a victory will allow them to claim
that the anti-Culver sentiment that Republicans have been talking
about for most of the year doesn't really exist despite all of the
recent polls that show that, for the first time in decades, Iowans
would rather vote for a Republican candidate than a Democrat for
governor.
